Lately: Sewing Projects

I've been pretty busy sewing lately...and it's taking away from my blogging time!! haha
If you follow along on Instagram, you've already seen what I've been up to.
First up I made a new bathing suit for Vyla, a few days later I finally used the silver leather hide I bought over a year ago, and then on wednesday I made myself a new workout top. 
Now I'm going to head downstairs to sew myself a new Mara Hoffman inspired bikinithat I can use for swimming laps at the pool!
Follow along on Instagram for sneak peeks of that project and others to come!

Leather Jacket and Printed Pants

What:
Leather Jacket- Wilsons Leather
Pants- Made by Bri
Shoes- Calvin Klein (love these!)

It seems like I'm always saying how simple my outfits are...but it seems to be the case a lot lately!  Yes, some people might want to say this is more crazy than simple...but really what's more simple that a leather jacket, white t-shirt and a pair of comfy pyjama like pants?  The only thing that isn't simple about this is my heels!

3 Ways to Wear a Sheer Skirt

I know for some people it's pretty hard to envision how a see through skirt (or any see through clothes for that matter) could be functional or stylish.  With the right clothes worn underneath the perfect outfit can always be built!
After I made this Floating Flower Sheer Skirt DIY I started playing around in my closet making outfits with it.  Playing dress up never gets old!
Here are 3 ways I would wear my sheer skirt!  Hopefully one of these looks can convince you to DIY your own..hehe
With a Graphic T
I always love the contrast of girly and rock in an outfit!
For this look I paired a graphic t with a black leather mini and some black stroppy sandals then threw my sheer skirt on top!

With a Crop Top
OK, normally see through and cropped might be overkill in an outfit.  But see through in the right places (no undergarments are being showcased! haha) combined with a ladylike silhouette (full gathered midi skirt) makes for a great combo!  I absolutely love how the bright yellow skirt looks under the sheer pink fabric!
Over Pants
I realize this is a bit of a wild card pairing, but right now I'm pretty obsessed with skirts and dresses being worn over pants.  I paired mine over skinny jeans...I'd love to try it over trousers and boyfriend jeans then for an even wilder card, cut offs!

Floating Flower Sheer Skirt DIY

I'm pretty sure I'm starting to sound like a broken record every time I post a new DIY....but...I'm really excited about this new project!!
We've been seeing sheer skirts every where...and I love embellishments, so I've mashed the two together!  This picture on pinterest has had me wanting a flower embellished skirt for a while now!
For this projects I made my tulle skirt from scratch, but if you just want to go out and buy a tulle skirt, all you have to do is sew on some fabric flowers to the top layer of tulle...you also might want to cut out the lining if you are wanting the skirt to have the same sheer effect as mine.
I also love the idea of using butterflies, or some other fun embellishment like lips or eyes!
Materials and Supplies
-Tulle Fabric (I used 2.5 yards of 54'' Wide Tulle)
-Elastic to Match (if possible, otherwise white or black will likely look fine)
-Thread to Match
-Sewing Machine
-Small Fabric Flowers (I found mine at the dollar store)
-Hand Sewing Needle
-Pins

Twin Pieces

What:
Top- via Hautelook
Skirt- Made by Bri
Shoes- via Hautelook (similar)

How cute is this skirt that Brianna made me for my birthday this year?!?  I love how she put a layer of tulle over a printed fabric, so cute!  She even made one for herself, see how she styled it here.  We have a lot of "twin" pieces in our closets...we figure since we live a Province apart it's totally OK to buy (or make) the same pieces as each other!

7 Years and Purple Hair

(Notice the cute little boy in the background...he was much too cute to crop out!)

What:
Leather Jacket- Wilson Leather (similar)
Slip Dress- Winners (love this one)
Shoes- Nine West (similar)

It took me a few goes, but I finally got my purple hair sorted (after the last try washed out after one wash!)...I ended up going on Amazon and looked up a bunch of purple hair dyes, to find one with a good rating and a good price.  I ended up purchasing 3 tubes of Sparks Premium Dye in Purple Passion, I figured my hair would probably use more than one tube....I was wrong..haha!  I ended up mixing the dye with some conditioner (about 50/50, maybe even more conditioner) and painted it on all my hair...I didn't even use a full tube to do my whole head!! This is amazing stuff for anyone thinking of dyeing their hair bright (there are many colour choices) and did I mention that a tube of dye was under $7! I did have my hair lightened ombre professionally first though.
Moving on from my hair...haha
Happy 7th Anniversary Brodylicious!
